(English Language Courses)
Depending on the student and their strengths and weaknesses, a suitable balance of conversation, grammar practice, and vocabulary will be established. The four key manners of fully grasping a new language - speaking, reading, writing, listening - will be used to best ensure a deep understanding,
Dependiendo del alumno, un adecuado equilibrio de la conversación, gramática y el vocabulario se establecerá. Las cuatro formas principales de comprender plenamente un nuevo lenguaje - hablar, leer, escribir, escuchar - se utilizarán para garantizar mejor una comprensión profunda.
My approach will be student-specific. No two learners are the same and brains work differently. Together, we will find you the most stimulating and productive lesson plan.

ABOUT THE TEACHER
Hello! My name is Della Donahue. I am from a small suburb 30 minutes south of Boston in Massachusetts, USA. I studied Architecture and Design - recently graduating this May 2015. I am now a few months into my next chapter living and working in Santiago, Chile to better understand my interests as I go forth. Teaching at a colegio has occupied my time and energy thus far. Now, having been inspired to explore this interest further, I would like to conduct courses of my own after the semester is complete in December.
I wish to create lessons of my own while simultaneously creating positive relationships with my students (teaching all grades at a colegio has proven difficult to make relations with all students - I find greater value in making stronger relationships with fewer students). I love seeing people grow in a subject they desire and have endless appreciation from what I learn from them!
Bachelor's Degree - University of Massachusetts, Amherst - 2015.
I am TEFL certified. I am currently an English teacher at a colegio in La Florida, Chile - grades Pre-kinder to 12th grade (cuarto medio). I will not be working with them after the semester ends in December. While conducting my undergraduate studies, I studied abroad in Torino, Italy. While taking classes, I obtained a side-job tutoring three 9 year old boys after school every week.
